Our Service PledgeWe usually respond to messages and orders within 24 hours and usually post three times a week.
This shop is run by me, Damian J Miles, a jeweller, gemmologist, numismatist and notaphilist based in Okehampton, Devon, UK, but serving a global clientele. I have been in the jewellery trade since 1990 and have experienced spanning various aspects of the trade. I have been self employed and selling online since 2014 through various marketplaces and my own website.
I am a working jeweller, making handmade pieces, repairing and restoring jewellery as well as producing valuations for insurance and probate. I hold a few different trade qualifications including a Graduate Gemmologist diploma from the G.I.A. as well as professional appraisal qualifications. I am a member of the UK's National Association of Jewellers as well as G.I.A.'s alumni.
I have been a collector of coins and British banknotes for many years and started dealing in them, as many do, by thinning out my own "evolving" collection. Celtic coins as well as gold coins are my specific areas of collecting.
All Antique and vintage items have been used and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece. Some scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically.
Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
